BDS Providers Development
In the Somali peninsula, exclusive reliance of SMEs on business consultancy and support from external service providers is minimal. The provision of business development services for SMEs is very traditional and informal. In general, SMEs will not pay or consultations which do not result in tangible physical outputs.
Large private business corporations such as those in the telecom business and upper/middle level businesses are reported to be the enterprises who understand and benefit from such services and outsource knowledge and technical assistance support internationally or send their staff to specialized training abroad.
SMEF has trained 114 individuals representing 70 BDSPs from throughout Puntland, Somaliland and FGS, providing them with new tools to help assess the needs of SME clients and how to complete full business proposals and plans.
